The day my ears first heard a country singer named Randy Travis’ song on the radio, I fell in love. I was a small child at the time. Then as I grew older, that music became the “oldies” and had music like Shaina Twain, which I hated!! So, my boyfriends(now husbands) Grandma was a huge country singer and had all the a tracks so every time I visited we sat around the table and listened to all his songs along with Conway Twitty, George Jones and many more like them. I remember always saying to them, if he ever makes a new album and goes back on tour I WILL BE THERE.
That day eventually did come several years later, I seen him on Good Morning America featuring his new album, I jumped up and screamed and shouted OMG, OMG, OMG IT’S HAPPENING!!! I was so excited and called everyone I knew to see who else was going with me. We bought our tickets and the count down was excruciating! I couldn’t stand it anymore.
Finally the day came and we were so excited, it was a very small venue and I felt like I was right there with him and at the end of his concert, we actually got to meet him, yes, I shook his hand and told him I loved him! Haha, yes, I said it! And he said back to me, well, I love you too and I appreciate it! OMG, I thought I was going to die right there. We didn’t get a picture with him because it had happened so quick and we didn’t know we would be able to meet him.
Yes, my dream came true. His voice can settle you like no other, and his songs just make you smile with the love you feel in them.
Here is a link to listen to him if you’ve never heard of him.
